Future Perspectives

The project highlights the territorial conflict between the urban development machine and the needs of a large municipal shelter, hosting several thousand animals. This conflict is an example of the gentrification phenomenon in the realities of modern Russia.

In a series of photographs I pose several questions: do domesticated animals have the right to preserve their temporary habitat? Can an entity that has significant power put its interests forward and ignore the needs of a weaker one?

Photographer, visual artist, live and work in Moscow (Russia).

I assign an important role to the economy of narration in both visual and meaningful senses, leaving to the viewer a space for imaginative perception. Great importance I attach to the shooting space, often making the landscape a separate character.

In my photoprojects I explore topics related to the borders of territories and peoples.

As an artist, I formulate my task in directing camera lens to where it is painful and unpleasant to look and in showing there is still some beauty in it.
